About the Book
Every day millions of people, boys and girls, are transitioning into adulthood. As they face life on their own, they will come across many situations and decisive junctures that will define the course of their journey. At times, they may miss the curtain of protection, but overall they will be excited to chart their own journey. They are 'Ready to Fly'.
The book is not about 'how to live your life'. It's an attempt to share a perspective about the practicalities of life and living - especially about things one needs to know but are not taught in school.
The book is written by a parent as a birthday gift to his young son as he sets out for the journey called life.
